Creamy Chicken Gorgonzola

Make dinner time a fine dining experience with this Creamy Gorgonzola Chicken with Sage recipe made with delicious morsels of tender chicken and earthy mushrooms that are bathed in a creamy sauce infused with sage, garlic, shallots, and the intense flavor of Gorgonzola and Parmesan cheeses. The rich flavors of the sauce coat every bite of chicken and pasta making this decadent, yet simple-to-prepare dish a feast for the senses in under 30 minutes.

What’s in Chicken Gorgonzola Sauce?

The sauce is made directly in the pan after browning diced chicken, minced garlic, shallots, and sliced mushrooms.

To these ingredients, white wine is added to deglaze the skillet. Heavy cream and chicken broth are then poured in as the base for the sauce, which is flavored with dried sage, red pepper flakes, and creamy gorgonzola cheese.

How Long Does It Take to Make Creamy Chicken Gorgonzola?

You can have this dish ready at the table in about 30 minutes. Prepping your ingredients will take about 10 minutes. This includes dicing the chicken, mincing the garlic and shallots, and getting all other ingredients ready.

While the pasta is cooking, you can brown the chicken and mushrooms, and start making the sauce. All in all, it will take you about 20 minutes more to complete the dish.

Can I Freeze Chicken Gorgonzola Pasta?

Yes, you can. However, I recommend you cook the chicken and mushrooms and make the sauce. Let this cool completely and store in a freezer-safe airtight container or bag.

Freeze it for up to four months. When you are ready to serve, let this thaw completely, cook the pasta, and reheat the sauce. I think this dish tastes better with freshly cooked pasta.
